Josai’s Short Term Study Program Selected for JASSO’s Student Exchange Support Program

It was announced that Josai’s Short Term Study Program has been selected by the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) for participation in their Student Exchange Support Program (Scholarship for Short Term Study in Japan) for the 2011-12 academic year.

The goal of this program is to facilitate exchange between students and construction of inter-university networks, in an effort to further the internationalization of academic institutions. Students accepted into the program will receive a scholarship from JASSO, thereby reducing the financial burden to them.

The below seven JIU programs have been selected as candidates for the JASSO scholarship. As a multidisciplinary university, JIU offers a diverse array of international study programs.
